Magnesium Oil Spray Overview

While it doesn’t fit exactly into one of our usual supplement categories, I was asked by a reader to talk about Magnesium Oil Spray in terms of the benefits it may have for athletes and fitness enthusiasts.

I have to admit, I didn’t know much about the relationship of magnesium to working out before getting this request.

My multivitamin contains 100 mg of magnesium oxide, but that’s as far as I’ve taken it.

But magnesium is involved in countless cellular reactions and particularly energy production and tissue repair.

So what is magnesium oil, and why do some doctors and health advisers say we need it?

Magnesium Oil Spray ReviewWhat is Magnesium Oil Spray

Oil is actually a bit of a misnomer.

It’s basically magnesium (usually in the form of magnesium chloride) in a watery spray solution.

Instructions vary somewhat, but generally involve applying a few to several sprays to your skin after bathing.

You can spray it directly or spray it into your cupped hand then rub it in.

It is commonly recommended to apply it to the tops of your feet or back of your hands, though because the key is that it is absorbed transdermally, almost anywhere will do.

Athletic Benefits of Magnesium Oil Spray

Magnesium is itself an essential mineral to anyone’s diet.

It’s important for optimal cellular health and functioning.

But more than that, there are some doctors and health professionals who believe it works wonders for the serious and/or competitive athlete.

When you exercise, the magnesium in your body goes to where it’s needed, potentially leaving a lack elsewhere.

The processes that suffer are oxygen uptake in muscle tissue as well as muscle tissue repair post exercise.

This equates to poor endurance during and sore muscle post strenuous exercise.

By increasing your magnesium intake, you ensure there’s enough to take care of normal bodily functions while also tending to the extra needs brought about by strenuous exercise.

Studies show that if you have sufficient levels, exercise does not cause a problem, but if you are deficient, you would benefit from supplementation. (1)

It is also thought that increasing magnesium intake helps calm restlessness and anxiety while promoting relaxation and a restful sleep.

Both of these effects are also beneficial for athletes and those with fitness goals.

Why a Spray?

Magnesium is not as well absorbed when taken orally as it is when applied transdermally.

By applying it to your skin, it can absorb directly into your bloodstream without having to go through the digestive system.

It’s also more convenient in that you can spray it on directly or add it to your bath water.

  1. Thanks Rob for the informative review. I love to read your perspective and breakdown of the products.

    I just ordered a bottle of spray and I’m going to run some tests. I’ve tried zinc and magnesium in pill form at bed on an empty stomach, as suggested, with no results – not even better sleep as claimed by some reviewers.

    Interestingly, the Vitamin Shop ZMA has 1 mg less than what is suggested for athletes. This is always a bummer to buy a product that doesn’t even contain the required amount that was used in studies to support the claims but that’s why you’re here;-).

    I’ll let you know if I notice anything from the spray. Thanks for your review!

    1. Thanks Rebekah. I look forward to hearing how it works for you, as I don’t have any personal experience with it.
